White dwarf blasts lighthouse-like beam at its red dwarf companion
Last year, a group of amateur stargazers noticed something a little strange about a distant star, and before long, a full study was launched, with multiple telescopes, including the European Southern Observatory's (ESO) Very Large Telescope (VLT) peering at AR Scorpii. What they found was a fascinating binary system, exhibiting never-before-seen behavior.

World's largest amphibious plane from China ready to sail and soar
China has just taken the wraps off the world's largest amphibious plane to enter service. Made by the state's aircraft maker, the AG600 is around the size of a Boeing 737 and will be used to douse forest fires and rescue people in danger offshore.

spruce goose wing span is 97.5 m and the Saunders-Roe Princess Wingspan: 219 ft 6 in (66.90 m) with wingtip floats retracted. 209 ft 6 in (63.86 m) floats extended. I don't understand why they are calling this the World's largest amphibious plane... furthermore the Beriev A-40 is clocked with a Wingspan of 41.62 m (136 ft 6 in)...  and the JRM-3 Mars is @ Wingspan: 200 ft 0 in (60.96 m).... largest in Asia perhaps? nope : H6K4 is @  Wingspan: 40.00 m (131 ft 2 in)... can somebody explain the title?

Has dwarf planet Ceres been erasing its craters?
Much like Star Trek's Starship Enterprise without its shields, when you're a planet without an atmosphere, space can be a dangerous place – especially in the earlier days of our Solar System's formation. With lots of asteroids floating around, chances are good that some doozies are going to smack into you. That is likely the case with dwarf planet Ceres, but its surface doesn't show any craters larger than 175 miles (280 kilometers) across. So what happened to the evidence? It looks like Ceres has been erasing it.

New light rendering technique ups the realism of computer generated images
It's already nigh on impossible to pick computer generated graphics in the latest blockbusters, but the job is set to get even harder thanks to researchers at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). They've developed a graphics algorithm that not only realistically models light reflecting off complex surfaces like water, leather, glass, and metal, but which also runs about 100 times faster than current state-of-the-art systems.

Floating house breaks up when its owners do
Deciding what to do with the house is a pretty stressful issue for home-owning couples to sort out if they separate. A conceptual home dubbed Prenuptial Housing could take the sting out of the process. Taking the view that love doesn't last forever, the floating home splits when its owners do.

Single-motor bots crawl, swim and climb with a wiggle and a wave
Over the years, we've seen a number of robots inspired by the animals kingdom – from jumpers and crawlers to swimmers and fliers. Inspired by the movement of snakes, an Israeli research team has now developed a bot that's said to be the first in the world to produce pure wave motion using a single motor.

Deep learning algorithm paints smooth-moving works of art
Last year, Google unleashed its Deep Dream Generator on the world, and a wave of images filled with bright lines, eyeballs and creepy dog heads flooded the internet. Now a team at the University of Freiburg in Germany has given neural networks a better sense of style by developing a method for taking an existing art style and smoothly applying it to a video. Artists, including New York-based Danil Krivoruchko, have already put the system to work with some beautiful results.

Inkjet printed solar cell turns your portrait into a power source
Researchers at Aalto University have come up with an inexpensive inkjet-printed solar cell that can be made into text or images. Designed to be used with low-power devices, it has already shown performance and durability comparable to that of existing organic dye solar cells.

Man levitates on terrifying gasoline-powered flying carpet
Eight petrol-powered heavy duty propellers, one tube lattice frame, a simple seat and a hobby-grade R/C controller wired in. What could possibly go wrong? This Swedish engineer displays a pair of colossal cojones as he puts his home-made flying carpet multirotor to the test.

Solar Impulse 2 flies into the history books with completion of circumnavigation
To the squeal of bagpipes and the beating of drums, Solar Impulse 2 today completed its round-the-world voyage right back where it began in Abu Dhabi. At 8:05 pm EDT (July 26 00:05 GMT), the single-seater experimental aircraft alighted on the tarmac of Al Bateen Executive Airport outside the capital of the United Arab Emirates with Bertrand Piccard at the controls, bringing to an end the historic solar-powered voyage.

Superbook gives Android smartphones a laptop form factor
Today's smartphones are incredibly powerful, with the ability to run productivity apps and games that would have been impossible even on full-blown desktop computers not so long ago. The problem is, the size and touch input of their displays isn't always the best way to take advantage of all that power under the hood. Andromium's new Superbook is designed to change that, giving an Android smartphone an 11.6-inch screen, full-size keyboard and trackpad.
